Why hire experts in Domovina Genealogy?

If you are undertaking genealogical research in Serbia you will notice that the most of the document and information are not available online. Secondly there is language barrier as majority of records is in old Serbian handwriting. So it makes's sense that research is done by a Serbian professional in Serbia and the price is very competitive. Our standard research rate is 30 Euro per hour.

How we work

We first review the information you already have, to define the research problem and make sure that we clearly understand your needs and expectations.

If we are confident we can help, we will develop a research proposal. This will include an estimate of the work hours involved and any likely extra costs. All fees are agreed in advance so you will know the amount you will pay before we start research. We will also give you an estimate of how long the project is likely to take.

We usually divide Research projects into phases of ten to twenty hours. The Clients always have control over the project direction and expenses. At the end of the each phase, you will receive a report with the findings and scans of any original records consulted during the phase.

Payment can be made by bank transfer or by credit card using Paypal. Full payment is requested in advance for budgets of 100 Euro or lower. For commissions over 100 Euro, we request half the agreed amount in advance and secod half on completion.

When “classic” family history research is requested we usually start with “Basic research package”. That Preliminary Research of available records about your ancestry includes a 4 hour research in an archive (Church and Governmental), a report that includes all the information that were found and also a suggestion how to continue. The cost for Basic research package is one-time fee of 200 Euro and € 0,4 Euro per kilometer if travel is necessary to complete the task.
